Saara Aalto Asked to Join Spice Girl Reunion Tour

The British tabloid The Sun has released a story that says that Finnish singing sensation Saara Aalto has been offered the role of the "fifth Spice Girl" in the reunion tour of the superstar British pop group The Spice Girls.


"With party pooper, Victoria Beckham refusing to be part of the Spice Girls reunion tour this summer, massive stars from Katy Perry to Adele have been touted to join the band on stage in place of Posh. But it turns out Mel C has already offered the gig — for at least part of the summer — to Saara Aalto," the tabloid writes.


In a video linked to the piece, Aalto asks Mel C if she could join the group as the sixth Spice Girl, to which 'Sporty Spice' replied that "you could be the fifth Spice Girl if you want."

The Sun reporter says Saara considers herself "a Spice Girls superfan" and is very excited about the prospects of joining at least some of their concerts.



"They want to have a fifth member for the tour. I was like, ‘Is this a real question?’ It’s insane. Posh was my favorite Spice Girl but she didn't have that many lines to sing," Aalto told the tabloid.


Four of the original five Spice Girls are planning a reunion tour this summer that would include six stadium performances. Saara Aalto would appear in at least part of them, The Sun reports.


Aalto became a major star in the UK after coming in second in Britain's X-Factor talent show. After this she represented Finland at the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest.


'Game Of Thrones' Final Episodes Are 'Like 6 Movies,' Says HBO Boss

Here's what everyone outside HBO and the cast and crew of Game of Thrones knows: Not much. There are small leaks and hints galore, but that's about it. Following the Golden Globes, however, HBO boss David Plepler did confirm that yes, Season 8 is basically a series of six full-length movies. 



Variety reports:



"Without any CGI" is pretty impressive, as Thrones is a heavily CGI-dependent drama.



So fans really do have a series of blockbuster movies ahead of them. One tiny teaser at about 40 seconds in the video above does reveal that Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) meets Sophie Turner's Sansa Stark at Winterfell—and Sansa is none too happy about it. In an interview, Turner also said GoT's last season will "be bloodier and more death and more emotionally torturous than all the years before." There you go, then. Game of Thrones Season 8 will be six movies full of blood, death, and emotional torture. The usual for this fantasy drama, but on steroids. Looks like HBO won't have any problems breaking viewership records when GoT begins airing this April.


Kevin Hart Will Not Host The Oscars

Kevin Hart says it’s not out of the realm of possibilities that he’ll be the host of the Academy Awards, but it doesn’t look like it’s happening this year. Hart is in NYC promoting his new movie, “The Upside,” and was asked if it’s a good bet he still may host the 90th annual Academy Awards.



“You gotta let your money roll,” Hart advised to the gamblers out there, but then followed up that “The chances are slim.” He does not want to comment on whether the Academy has reached out and asked him to be the host. The comedian says he loves the academy and everyone involved, but “this year was a tricky year.” He does admit that “maybe in the future” it will work out.


Rebel Wilson Rescued Off Top of a Mountain During Ski Vacation

Rebel Wilson’s winter getaway didn’t exactly go as planned. The “Pitch Perfect” star decided to try her hand at skiing during her trip to Aspen, Colorado, but it was easier said then done. She ended up having to be rescued from the top of a mountain after realizing she had gone up too high, and couldn’t get back down. 




At first, she cheekily posted to her Instagram story that “This is a bit too experienced for me, so I’m just gonna slide down.” But then things escalated.  Next, she shared a video of herself strapped to a yellow stretcher while her rescuer prepared to take her down the mountain. Her hashtag? #HorizontalSkiing, of course, a reference to her “Pitch Perfect” character, Fat Amy’s, “horizontal running.”




Baby Number 4 for Kimye!?!

It looks like congratulations are in order for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.  “Us Weekly” reports that the couple are expecting their fourth baby via surrogate. A source says that Kimye’s new baby is due “in very early May.” Another ‘insider’ reveals that Kim “always wanted four kids.”



Neither Kim nor Kanye have confirmed the news. As anyone with an internet connection and a basic knowledge of pop culture knows, the couple already have three kids together—five-year-old North, three-year-old Saint, and baby Chicago, who was born via surrogate.
